Community cookbooks are a treasured American tradition dating back over a hundred years, providing revealing snapshots of the culinary trends, popular ingredients, and entertaining styles in the individual communities they represent. A collection of recipes from cooks in a virtual community is the natural evolution in this time-honored practice.
"The History Press is excited to be part of the Austin Food Blogger Alliance's first cookbook," said Becky LeJeune, Commissioning Editor of the History Press. "As part of our American Palate series, the cookbook illustrates the evolution of Texas and Austin food culture, providing a unique look at today's trends."
In order to raise the money for their own wholesale order of books, the Alliance recently launched a pre-sale campaign. Copies of the Austin Food Blogger Alliance Cookbook can be ordered on the group homepage via the PayPal link. Books are $25 each or $20 each with the purchase of 5 or more at a time. Proceeds from sales of the cookbooks will support classes and events sponsored by the Alliance, as well as their community philanthropy.
